This is Sandra from Candy Stripes Sweet Shop, which recently opened on Flixton Road, Urmston.  Sandra traded from Urmston Market for a long time but took the decision to open her own shop due to demand from customers.

Sandra’s lovely little shop is situated just a stone’s throw from the wool shop (HMK Wools) and more or less opposite Nikki and Co.  As you can see, she stocks a huge range – the above photo is only a fraction of the sugary treats crammed onto Candy Stripe‘s shelves.

As well as jarred sweets, Candy Stripes boasts a pick’n’mic section and a slush puppy machine.  Sandra also stocks diabetic-friendly sugar-free sweets and chocolate and most of her sweets are vegetarian.

Candy Stripes Sweets recently moved from Urmston Market to a permanent shop on Flixton Road.
